Review: The team at Dubquake have pulled out a real gem in this one as the legendary Charlie P touches down for his brand new album 'From Mi Born', featuring 9 outstanding reggae originals and 3 bonus dub mixes, perfect to warm you up across the winter months. From the clash-ready one drop sounds of 'Oh Jah' and blues-dance vibes of '4 Policemen' to the rockers singalong 'Yuppy Girl', this album is a fantastic showcase of modern reggae music at its finest. For us, the clear standout section of the project comes from the pounding subs and glistening horn section of 'Secret Survivor'.
Review: Who doesn't love a new school reggae album eh? We are very excited to see this one touch the store as Nazamba touches down on Dubquake for a fantastic body of self titled work, featuring a couple of high profile guest apperances from the likes of Soom T and Linval Thompson. The project explores Nazamba's poetic style of dubwise lyricism and futuristic production, with particular highlights for us including the darkened tones and hypnotic notation of 'The Groove', along with the super experimental spacey textures of 'Badmind' and the rootsy flavours of 'Africa'.
Review: The team at Dubquake make a welcome return here as they invite OBF and Shanti D in for a box of dubwise goodness, consisting of four original belters. We kick off the A side with 'Part Of My Life', which sees OBF lay down a glitch woven dub expanse, packed with electronic clicks and marching dubstyle subs, providing the perfect foundation for Shanti D to get busy toasting with his unique vocal presence. Next up we have 'Dub Is My Life', which draws energy from pulsating electronic sub instrumentation, before 'Dem A Try' adds some bubbling rhythmic prowess to the table. Finally, 'Try A Dub' gives us a spaced out soundscape of classic dub reverbs and drum work, providing the perfect ending to an impressive body of work.
